Description chrispcampbell 2008-04-07 20:16:21 UTC
We have a bunch of projects based on NB 6.0 (see  When I open those projects in NB 6.1
(tried 6.1 200804060002 nightly build), build-impl.xml is changed just slightly:

The changes seem harmless, so I committed them to SVN.  But if I then reopen the project in NB 6.0, that version of the
IDE tries to revert the file back to the way it was, so SVN shows changes in these files.  Since we have a mixture of
people on our team, some using 6.0, some trying out 6.1, this becomes a big nuisance, because it will show these files
being changed in SVN, and you have to do "Exclude from commit" to avoid changing them constantly.

Is there a way to stabilize these files from release to release?

Reassigning to "ant" for evaluation.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2008-04-09 20:05:26 UTC
No, there is no way currently to prevent the 6.0 IDE from installing old stylesheets. See point #2 in #42735, already filed.
